Metabolic Measurement Technology (ParvoMedics TrueOne system): HG101

This instrument is used to determine energy expenditure at rest as well as during exercise. The technology has three components; 1) computer system, 2) monitor which produces digital output, and 3) breathing tube for collection and analysis of O2, CO2 and respiration. This application is especially important to the students in the Exercise Science who study physiological responses to different types of physical activity and sports.

Spartan – Computational Modeling Software: FSC334

This software provides students with exposure to computational chemistry by introducing them to: molecular modeling, through manipulation of various organic molecules in space in order to explore the various conformations a molecule can assume; electronic structure and the techniques necessary to understand this field of chemistry; a practical application of semi-empirical and ab-initio techniques from the standpoint of quantum mechanics. Spartan also allows for the calculation of potential energy surfaces, which is a key component for understanding the complicated dynamics involved with chemical kinetics, and the calculation of energy levels of molecular orbitals and the visualization of the molecular orbitals.
